    ★★★

    I have a strange soft spot for prison movies, there’s just something about the claustrophobic, gritty settings that I can’t help but be immediately engaged by. This was decent for the most part but I found it to get very repetitive after a while and by the last third it was starting to lose me.

    Luckily the performances keep the film firmly glued together, Mendelsohn going full Mendelsohn is always great and Jack O’Connel really deserves to be in more things.

    ★★★

    There's such a big contrast for me when it comes to Lynne Ramsay's work. Her late 90s/ early 2000s films feel purely like someone honing in on their art and by the 2010s, something really clicked for her to make it seem like she has become a master at her craft after making films for decades.

    Personally, I believe both We Need to Talk About Kevin and You Were Never Really Here are vastly superior to this and Morvern Callar but its definitely interesting to see how much she has progressed from her original jumping ground.

    ★★½

    A good portion of this is competently shot, the other half looks like an episode of The Office.
